You will also learn how to create pivot tables, use filters to manage your tables, and perform calculations using the formulas and functions available in Excel.
Creating a Table in Excel
Creating a table is undoubtedly the basic functionality of the software, and it must be completely mastered before moving on to more complex commands. Adding a table is relatively simple, although first and foremost, you’ll need a clear vision of what you want to create to achieve the most aesthetic result. You can add appropriate text and data to fulfill all your needs and then proceed to the next step.
Excel Page Layout
Creating an Excel table doesn’t end with inserting specific text or data. The software’s intuitive nature allows you to enhance the overall aesthetics using a command called Table Formatting. With this functionality, you can choose various styles and colors to incorporate into your table, aiming for the clearest and most relevant form. The software offers numerous options to improve your overall page layout.
If there’s a term frequently used in Excel, it’s “cells.” By definition, a cell on the interface is the intersection of a row and column. On each cell in your table, you can add text and even merge cells together. This can be used to change their sizes, set new typography, define precise formatting, or even add colors to the cell background. In other words, cells offer you a broad range of possibilities!
Basic Formulas and Functions
Another essential feature in Excel is the ability to perform various calculations within tables, involving the practical application of basic functions and formulas. Using Excel’s menu – also known as the ribbon – you can access some of the most commonly used functions and assist in their insertion. Among the most frequently used ones, you’ll find sum, average, or even more complex ones like IF, which allows you to obtain results based on data present in different cells. This option helps you manage your company’s finances or gather data for a better overview.
Sorting and AutoFilter
Sorting and AutoFilter are also significant topics in Excel. While these two concepts are sometimes confused, they remain essential in the software and are especially complementary for smooth navigation within your database. In Excel, using the sort command involves making choices within a defined area, such as choosing to sort in ascending or descending order. As for data filtering, this feature allows you to display only desired results, with the option to hide other elements present in your database. Both are very practical options for your daily tasks in Excel.
Introduction to Charts
For presenting product sales trends or any other professional documents analyzing different data, a table might be a good solution, but it’s not the only one. In some cases, a chart can be particularly relevant. Thus, Excel allows you to insert a chart with just a few clicks. During this training, we will see how to insert a chart and how to choose, using various templates, the chart style that best suits your needs. You can move it around as you wish to achieve the most aesthetic result!
